Current state regulations have asked us to refrain from congregational singing and chanting at this time. We will continue to offer music as a part of our online worship and have instrumental and special music as a part of the in-person services.
The Lutheran tradition has always placed great importance in singing praise to the glory of God. Wherever and whenever Christians gather, they sing songs of praise, songs of confidence and faith, songs of confession and contrition, songs of exile and rebirth, and songs of sin and salvation. The gift of song in the Lutheran church serves as a means by which the Christian proclaims thanksgiving for the victory and salvation from sin won through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
"Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise. The gift of language combined with the gift of song was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through Music."
― Martin Luther
Choirs and instrumentalists in the Lutheran church serve to help and support the gathered congregation, assisting and enriching the entire worship setting. Our Savior offers opportunities for all ages to participate and assist in leading worship.
